How the book club works:
Scheduling: We meet the first Friday of every month, unless that day falls on or near a holiday.
Location: Meetups are generally held in members' homes on the northside of Chicago. The host provides light snacks. If a meetup location is "TBA", please consider volunteering to host it!
What to bring: The beverage of your choice.
Selection of books: We choose books more or less democratically. Any member can nominate books to go on the suggested book list found under the "pages" tab on the group homepage. The members who attend a meetup discuss and decide on the next book. The book can be from any genre, as long as it will generate discussion.
Attendance: Because we meet in members' homes, space is limited. If you RSVP "yes", you are saying that you intend to read the book and show up to the meetup. If that changes, you should change your RSVP.
Membership: Repeat no-shows will be removed from the group.
Meetup fee: $1-2 for each meetup that you attend is suggested. It goes to the cost of maintaining the group (currently $144/year). From 2010 to 2013, group expenses were approximately $432, while group income was $50, so no one is making money from running the group. For more information, go to "Group Tools" and then "Money".
